If someone does have her, pls. take her to any vet - they will scan for free if she's chipped!

Why don't the politicians we hire understand that they are employees of this town and that theyRead Moreshou ld be doing what we their employers want them to do. the last set of politicians didn't seem to understand that and were sent packing. Do we have to do the same with this bunch? The majority of the township people have been telling town hall that we don't want condos or apartments built at the Foodtown site, Over and over again we have been telling them this. We all know that "luxury apartments or condos are nothing but code words for Section 8. The majority of township people want a park put in there, Nothing fancy just walking paths, maybe a place to rent or bring canoes to paddle around Forge Pond. Nothing extravagant, nothing that would be expensive to maintain and will preserve what little forest land we have. Tear up the parking lot, reforest the area and put in a small parking lot. Put in nature walk paths, maybe even a dog walk area, a canoe ramp and be done with it!

I generally like Sal Petoia's input. But the same way we have seen "musical chairs" with Read Morebig box electronic retailers pushing each other out, A Cabella or a Bass Pro shop would almost certainly close Sports Authority or Dick's. I am not saying these retailers should not be considered.

JWB/Andy Pat: I don’t think anyone wants to put a local out of business, and there areRead Moreexampl es where national chains have not done that as cited earlier. The local stores that survive do so because they are run by astute business people and cater to a clientele which continues to patronize them because of customer satisfaction. If we still believe in "free enterprise", it should not be the government’s business to legislate for the purpose of assuring the success or failure of a business. Government should be looking to do what is best overall for the town and its people. If the goal is to bring in revenue, then some type of commercial enterprise is the answer. If the goal is to ignore a use which could help in a small way to mitigate ever increasing taxes, then make the Foodtown site a park or recreational area recognizing that the taxpayers will bear the burden of making up the loss in tax revenue. But if a commercial use is deemed the choice, it should not be one that will cost the town more money in the long run, e.g. apartments with school age kids; nor should it be one that could lead to an influx of transients who would contribute little to the community. If the Mayor and Council are listening, they should let the people decide the fate of the site by way of a referendum. And if they disagree, the people always can resort to the option of Initiative and Referendum such as that which sought a referendum that would have given the people the right to decide about the Ice Palace purchase.
